Future Library aims to transform Greek public libraries into unique centers of creativity, innovation and learning.
The Stavros Niarchos Foundation is Future Library’s exclusive donor. The Foundation’s grant aims at developing a sustainable network of public and municipal libraries across Greece, which will further be linked to the National Library of Greece, when this moves to its new premises, at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center. The ultimate goal of this development is to reinforce the significance of libraries, as knowledge, creativity, and interaction-promoting institution in people’s minds.
The Future Library, a non-profit organization, was established in Veria in 2011. It spun out of the Veria Central Public Library, recipient of the 2010 Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation “Access to Learning” Award.
